Apple, pommel or shower?

11
The style of your shower head is dictated by the decoration of the bathroom. You will find flat, square, round shapes, etc. Apple, knobs and hand shower designate the same product. The difference in name will come from its position and use (height, mobile, complementary …).

When it is fixed to the wall (between 10 and 20 centimeters above the head), it is called high apple. Its large diameter (between 15 and 30cm) offers a not insignificant comfort. It exists in all forms: square, rectangular, star, etc.

11
For a different feeling and comfort, choose the jet that best suits your needs. Depending on the models, you will have access to one or more jets. 
The single jet is very powerful, with a large number of holes well distributed throughout the surface. The multijets, meanwhile, satisfies all desires since everyone can choose his type of shower. Knowing that the more the surface of the shower is important the less power will be felt.
  • The jet rain: this is the standard jet that is found on all the knobs, fine and dense it allows to quickly rinse the body.
  • The concentrated rain stream: denser and wider, it increases comfort.
  • The foaming jet: its foaming effect is due to the presence of air that gives it a soft feeling. Ideal for hair.
  • The massaging jet: it tones and massages the body.
  • Pulsating jet: it alternates massaging jet and air pulses for an ultra tonic sensation. Enhances the well being of the body.
  • The spray jet: ideal for relaxing thanks to the vaporization of fine droplets of water.
  • The soft spray: foaming spray softer than the traditional one, it relaxes without aggressing the skin.

3 Innovations on shower heads

  • The shower stop : it saves water by cutting the flow without changing the temperature.
  • The shower saver: the knob is equipped with a venturi system which allows to add air to the water to offer a comfort and an identical flow using less water. By simply pushing the ring on the knob, the water consumption is reduced by half.
  • Anti-limestone: these are silicone spikes that make the nozzle supple and prevent the limestone from settling. A sponge is sufficient for descaling.
  • Lighting: the LED shower head has several functionalities. Either the color will reflect the temperature of the water and will serve as an indicator, or the colors will give a cozy atmosphere to your shower.

4 Connection

More and more knobs are equipped with a quick coupling system that allows the shower head to be simply “clicked” on the hose. The standard dimension is 15 x 21 mm.
The rotating nut is also appreciable, it allows the knob to turn on itself without twisting on the hose.
Often neglected , the choice of the hose is very important in the proper functioning of the shower.
There are plastic or metal hoses with single or double stapling.
On the sizes side, four lengths exist: 1.25 m; 1.50 m; 1.75 m and 2 m. The choice of the connection will be determined by its use in a shower and a bath and the size of the users.
Quick connect systems are very appreciable especially for the maintenance or the change of pommel.
